Yep – LinkedIn hacked

Further to my last post, LinkedIn confirmed that “some” passwords have been obtained and LinkedIn will email compromised members. We have also seen some industry pundits pointing to a website to check if your password is one that has been hacked and decrypted.

Both of these ideas are fraught with danger and must be really tempting targets for a phishing attempt. LinkedIn claim any email from them won’t have any links in it but please don’t follow ANY email instructions (especially one with links to websites in it) or go to any website that claims to let you check if you are affected.

Our recommendation is log onto LinkedIn and change your password to a good strong password and don’t respond to any email or website claiming to help.
